Project Details

Description

Correct community response to aftershocks reduces subsequent loss of life in earthquake-stricken areas but local response can be delayed or inhibited by social, cultural and political factors. Effective, large-scale user engagement with appropriate information, so essential in emergency response, requires work on developing public awareness at scale, designing effective co-learning across multiple stakeholder groups, and building a deep understanding of the social and gender issues which might limit, or enable, user engagement.

This project is led by John McCloskey and Mark Naylor in the School of Geosciences at the University of Edinburgh: the Centre for Research in Digital Education is leading the education, learning and engagement strand of the work.
